Well the Sun's up and at 'em again!

New Labour really does hate the English and it's got right up the Sun's collective tabloid nose. And about time too! That story is back in the Sun this morning:

THE Sun flew the flag for England yesterday — after Labour official Terry White said fans who waved it were racist.

Our patriotic team unfurled a 70ft-wide Cross of St George yards from Labour’s Communication Unit HQ in Central London.

Crowds of Christmas shoppers cheered as the emblem was laid out by a team led by reporter Harry Macadam.

Mum-of-two Sarah Hill, from Mill Hill, North London, said: “Well done to The Sun for standing up for England.”

But let it not be forgotten where the story broke first: The Campaign for an English Parliament

It's rather sad that it's the Sun that's doing it though. It doesn't matter how worthy a campaign they may/might support, I could never be happy that it's the Sun.

I'm probably going to have to duck and hide after saying this, but its true that the National front do some pretty violent things under the England flag.

However

I would say thats all the more reason to encourage normal English people to wave the flag more often, just to reclaim it.

Its only true that the people who display the flag are racist, if nobody but the NF ever flies it.

I don't know if he has a point - I mean, do the NF use football matches as a useful cover for bashing other nations? He was styill very silly and insulting to generalise.

I'm a bit confused (but thats normal, so hey we're on the right track)
